According to Premier Li, big data and other new internet technologies have already changed the world profoundly, which has lead to all countries standing on the same starting line of scientific and technical revolution. "We should develop a sharing economy," said Li, "so as to let more people have equal opportunities to work and start their own business, and let people better enjoy the harvest of reform and development."

The city has established the first key laboratory for big data strategy and launched the first all-domain public free WiFi in China. It has cultivated the big data development theory with block data and is an enthusiastic promoter for establishing China's first big data public platform based on block data aggregation.
Guiyang is also dedicated to creating China's first model city for opening government data. The city has opened China's first big data exchange center and is now focusing on constructing China's first big data industry development cluster.
